Biography

The Harptones was an American doo-wop group.

The group never had a top forty pop hit, or even a record on the national R&B charts, yet they are still considered one of the most influential doo-wop groups, both for their lead singer, Willie Winfield and their pianist/arranger, Raoul Cita. The Harptones may have been the first doo-wop group to number a full-time arranger among their members, and Cita knew how to work to Winfield’s strengths. Their best-known recordings include Life Is But A Dream, Sunday Kind of Love and The Shrine of St. Cecilia. The song Life Is But A Dream is featured in the movie Goodfellas during Karen and Henry’s wedding. The song can be found on the film’s soundtrack. Sunday Kind Of Love by the Harptones was one of the must songs in every street corner dop wop group’s songlist.
